I’m deciding between Debian 7.3 (3.2.0 kernel) and CentOS 6.5 (2.6.32 kernel) for production. I’m wondering if anyone has recommendation. We run the DPDK application in a virtualized environment. Currently, we configure NICs in pass-through mode which gives the best performance. In the future, we plan to use DPDK with paravirtualized nics (eg. vmxnet3-usermap). Thanks.
